PayPal Enables Personalized P2P Payments, Expands One Touch to New Markets
Sept. 3, 2015
This week, online payment provider PayPal launched PayPal.Me, a new platform that enables P2P online payments through a unique online URL. Users can send a personalized link to anyone they wish to receive payment from and the recipient will be directed to the user’s PayPal.Me page where they can make the payment. Users can include their link on social networks, in emails, blogs, text messages, etc. The funds are delivered to the sender’s PayPal account. The service is now available in 18 countries mostly in North America and Europe.
Separately, the Silicon Valley-based payments company last week revealed that its One Touch technology, which enables one-touch checkout at most PayPal merchants, is now available in 13 additional markets around the world. Merchants in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey can now enable One Touch purchases with no extra integration.
